Raised in the slums of Edwardian Tyneside, spirited and out-spoken Maggie Beaton joins the ranks of the suffragettes, determined to prove herself to her more wealthy comrades, in particular Alice Pearson, haughty daughter of the powerful local shipbuilder. But the consequences are devastating and Maggie is soon a fugitive, spurned by family and friends. Only militant trade unionist and passionate man, George Gordon, stands by her and for a blissful time his love is enough. But war is looming and Maggie's courage and endurance will be tested to the limit, in this heartbreakingly moving novel of one woman's fight for personal freedom. It is a new version of The Suffragette novel to mark the centenary of suffragette martyr Emily Wilding Davison's death.
